I've had a long, hard day of spreadsheets & numbers... the Accounting World at its best.... So I'm excited that its Monday & its LLLIIIVVVEEEEE!!!!!!!
We get to see a flash back of David Allen Grier... oh DAG - how I love your humor off the show. How your grumpy gus face didnt seem to work here... Oh DAG - I will miss you! But tonight, we see we get the Jive & the RUMBA... with Steve O fogging up the glass as he says it... ewww!!! So I am foreseeing lots of fun spins & take back to the 60's... & alot of sexiness with the Rumba - or at least, some "trying to bring Sexy Back" - most people aren't all that good at the Rumba - but its always fun to watch. I'm just wondering if Gilles is going to be doing that dance.... hopefully not - the women of American can't handle anymore!!! Let's get started!
#1 - Ty, the cowboy is up first & he is doing the Jive. I'm not foreseeing a good dance just because you have to be pretty loose. I am quite surprised that he does the WAVE pretty good though - & who knew that bull riders could hoola hoop so well. I guess you need hip action to stay on a bull while it twists? Who knows - a cowgirl - I am not!
The dance just confused me... does the jive got country in it? It was too much country line dancing & Chelsea dancing solo.... I honestly didnt even notice Ty being there until half way done... & then I thought, "OH NO" when I did see him. I'm seeing flashbacks of the first week with the timing off & just looks of confusion..... Poor sweet cowboy! Unfortunately, my prediction was right... not at all his calling. Scores = 6,6,6 ..... I will give a 10 to Chelsea though for doing some pretty dang good kick work in chunky boots! YEE-HAW!!!
#2 = Shawn - & she's up doing the Rumba. The giggles already start when she's told she has to be sensual. What does a 17 yr old know about being sensual? Heck - I'm 37 & I don't get it either! I think it has something to do with a good dinner? And you all know I don't cook!
Anyways - we see Mark trying to get her to slap her thighs & she cant even do that without giggling - so what's a guy to do? Create a prom - the perfect high school musical atmosphere for her. It really was adorable to see him in the tux surprising her. Tony D - you have to watch out - Mark is slowly knocking you out as my favorite dude dancer!!!
I thought it was the sweetest dance! She didn't giggle once - she spun, wrapped herself around him & stared gazingly (is that a word) in Mark's eyes... but as noted - it was AGE APPROPRIATE! We gotta remember folks - she's 17! For that alone - the girl deserved 10's in my book! But alas - the scores - 8,9,9 ..... I think Carrie Ann was just upset she didn't get her own personal prom from Mark! ... I don't remember sheer guy's shirts at prom though....
#3 - Lawrence aka last week's Bottom Two member! Who knew the jive contained so much cursing? The pressure is getting to the man! And you'd think a football player could handle a kicking dance.... what does a big burly, football player man need... his dancing buddy! ITS WARREN SAPP!!! I LOVED that dude last year! But he seems to be bringing some pep back to Lawrence.
And even better - we get LEG WARMERS!!! Only Edyta can pull them off... I gotta go to my 80's drawer & pull mine out just to honor this dance!
But WHAT???? I thought it was horrible... I didn't even really see him "kick" & didn't really even think he moved that well & the judges are lavishing praises that this is his best dance? Why does my blood boil over these judges sometimes? Everyone is clapping with their response - I'd the the only lone boo'er here... I dont get it... I thought it was awful... these scores are going to make me rip my leg warmers off!! Scores - 7, 7, 8......WHAT - an 8???? I'm even going to go pop a football too in protest!
#4 Melissa & my lovely Tony D!!! She is reminded again what the dance is about & dang it if he just didn't take the knife & twist it in her when he tells her to place her hands like there is a 10 carat diamond on there...to which she just stares & says "but its empty"... poor Melissa... Mark totally scores one for prom while Tony brings back painful memories!
But Tony tries to redeem himself by wearing a rainbow sherbet sheer shirt - dont know how since that's a hideous shirt, but hey, its Dancing with the Stars & sometimes, we get these sort of costumes!
Melissa was beautiful - so elegant, very romantic - I just hoped Jason aka, the jerky Bachelor was watching & missed her... JERK!
I hate the judges critique her for being Balletic... who knew THAT was a word! But hello - she did ballet! What do you expect? I see next week's segment already trying to break her of that!
Scores - 9,9,9 - well deserved - if alone, for doing the splits standing on your own - ouch!
#5 - Latoya Jackson... I mean Lil' Kim & Derek. They are getting the Jive & from the costumes, we can already tell the theme & the way this is going to go. Anyone else find it funny Lil' Kim is the cop & she just got out of jail not too long ago... oh, the dancing irony!
While the dance was full of fun & cuteness & show... I didn't really care for it like the judges - with Carrie Ann throwing her diamond bracelet around! I thought Kim looked like she was tripping over herself & missing a few steps even! I must be getting old & grumpy because I agree with Len - what they did was good for show, but as the dance - not so much....
And what happened that Tom had to stand in front of her... the fun of LLLLIIIVVEEE tv I guess.
Scores = 10, 8, 10 - two 10's???? WHAT??? And they didn't give Shawn a 10? I'd go throw my Lil' Kim CD's away in protest - if I had any!
#6 - Steve O & Lacy - Rumba is calling their name & sexiness to Steve O is picking his nose, passing some gas, & scratching his butt... I have a feeling this is what 90% of the women in America get to see as their sexy partners... not my husband though! He's going to put on his rainbow sherbet shirt right now!!
Anyways - can I say, I love my dogs too, but for that to be my inspiration for a sensual dance? That was a little strange to me. But I will agree with Carrie Ann - it was mesmerizing to watch - & I think I just understand why - because I think girls just like PJ's... I kept looking at Lacy thinking, I wonder what store carries those cute girl boxers!
Scores = 7,4,5 .... yep - it was the PJ's talking to Carrie Ann
#7 - Gilles.... he doesn't get a "sexy" dance, but a fun one.. & he's still in leather... weird! But the jive has turned from country to now ROCK...but we did get to see how fast this man's legs can work on the soccer field - & Cheryl's reaction as he got so excited about his goal was hilarious - the look of "HUH?" - its the sport of the sexy Italians!
HOLY SMOKE - that was fast! The man cant do any wrong, but I didn't care for the dance & I blame it all on Cheryl.... she's using the same, arms around the head, slow movement up against each other a few too many times now. All her fault... But I'll still give him my votes tonight - no doubt. This just wont be one of the You Tube videos I'll watch for the week...
Scores - 9,8,9
#8 - Chuck & Julianne - before we get started, is it me or has he looked totally uncomfortable in a lace shirt all night? OK - the Rumba - they are a real life couple - this should be decent - & as I think that, Chuck says the same thing saying "I'd hate for the judges to say we don't have chemistry"... & did anyone hear him call her "Baby Love"? How cute was that?
We get to see where their first date was & where they had their first kiss - how sweet! "I'm glad to be your girl" - "I'm glad to be your man"... let's see if they bring it to the dance.
Wow - I dont think some of that should have been on TV... Holy Cow... I'd totally say that was the dance of seduction & romance between them... Talk about 100% difference from the sweet innocent Rumba of Shawn... here's the other end of the spectrum of dance!
Scores = 8,7,8
So fellow lovers of dance - we've made it through another night - & we're half way through! I totally am cheering for my favorite three of Shawn, Gilles & Melissa to make the finals - they impress me each week!
Did you smile at the Prom with Shawn? Did you think Lawrence was as good as they said? Did you want a pair of PJ's like Lacy's too? And who do you think should go?
